    Pay less attention to the person trying to make a dollar or two shining shoes, and more attention to the real cons who are robbing you with over priced, high dollar everything else ๐Ÿ˜Š
    Youโ€™re welcome

    I LOVE NOLA…But, once in a taxi, from the airport I had a scary experience. In the night, the driver stopped at a run down place, got out of the car not saying a word, no lights in the street… Then, he reappeared 10-15 min later. I was alone with my suitcases and I all I did was fake a call to someone pretending I am in touch with a person. Went to the hotel and never saw him again. That was weird and scary., But NOLA is the best city ever.

    Just found your channel. What a great job! I sub'd. I moved there in 1981 and lived there and on the West Bank for many many years. When I got there, I had never even heard of Mardi Gras!! (or the French Quarter!) What a shock! Keep up the great work.

    This company's foot tours are the best. I did the Garden District walking tour, and our guide was so energetic and full of great stories and knowledge. I'm not big on tours, but I would do another Free Tours By Foot tour in New Orleans any time I am in town.

    Mule tours are cruel and they over work those poor creatures. Many cities are banning horse and carriages. Do not support slavery! They work for 8 hrs and have no breaks or have water and it's too hot for them in the summer time. ๐Ÿคฌ

    It's best to go when it's not overcrowded. My husband and I went to Mardi gras and some guy patted me down from my waist to my calf's trying to pick my pockets. He disappeared in the crowd before I knew what was happening and before I could tell my husband. He didn't get anything because my husband was holding the money…..lol

    Booked at the Andrew Jackson hotel with older kids. Just wanted to be able to walk around easily. Was this a bad idea?

    My wife and I have been visiting New Orleans on a regular basis since 2009. We did the French Quarter thing for the first couple of years, but soon learned that there is much more to the city than the French Quarter. We stay at a timeshare on St. Charles Avenue and we purchased our own bicycles to tour the city. There is so much to see! We also discovered that the better restaurants are outside the French Quarter (with the exception of the high-end restaurants such as Muriel's, Brennan's, etc.).

    We just got back from staying in the French Quarter last night. We had a really great time! The shoe con, we got really tired of that over the 4 days we were there. After my friend got hit up 4-5 times, I think I figured out a trend. I was wearing clean sneakers and he was wearing dirty sneakers. Every single time they were trying to talk to him and not me. other than that we were dressed like most people there. we knew where we were going. And even one guy looked like he was coming from a kitchen job or on his way to it. We were able to avoid the cons thanks to your videos. Sadly, I saw a few people trapped up in it on Bourbon St. The tap dancer guy in Jackson square was pretty much harassing people who didn't tip him as they walked by. We just started giving him space as we got near his area to avoid the hassle. We had great service at all of the bars and restaurants we visited and met a lot of great people. Some who lived and worked there as well as other visitors. Sadly, on at least 2 occasions our waitress was hesitant to say much to us until we paid the bill and she saw the cash tip. Then she was all smiles and talkative. We even had a nice conversation as we were leaving. I could tell by the smiles and look of surprise on their faces and others including bartenders that many there were not used to seeing good tips let alone in cash. Thanks again!

    My favorite part was the 10-foot tall piles of trash bags sitting on the curbs.

    Werewolf Royce Allison OTO Knights Templars Roman Catholic said to Vampire Kalob Ex Navy commo OTO Freemason he's angelic pointing at me on Jackson Square. Royce said he was the King of Jackson Square and I could use deadly force if needed. Told me to where the Eye of Horus around my neck to be always seen.

    The minute you see the "Welcome to New Orleans" sign you are in a tourist trap.

    I found this to be very good information… Because, therre's a bunch more to do in NO that if you mentioned it here, it would make this video so much longer. I am from Louisiana, and have been to French Quarters enough times, games, parades, etc to know the ropes . But, i had a friend to come with me recently, and wanted him to explore NO and have a memorable trip. So, on Friday 13th, I booked a Voodoo, Ghost, and Vampire tour at 8pm.. Never considered a walking tour before on my own, but it turned out to be such a fun experience. It was very entertaining and the cost was reasonable. But, before booking, i read many reviews before picking a tour. And of course, on that day, there were so many other walking tours happening at the same time, but our guide was considerate enough to maintain distance to the areas visited and give space to other tours happening so that the information could be heard. The French Quarters can be a loud and busy place. Many mentally ill, intoxicated, and or under the influence of something people are also out and on more than one occasion, were attracted to the tours and would yell at and say things to our group as they walked past, but our tour guide pressed on. Tour guides have a lot to contend with when doing these tours. But this experience was fun and I would definitely do it again and recommend any walking tour. But do your research and pick the one that you feel is the best for your needs. And hope you get the luck of a good tour guide
    I would suggest the earliest times to book walking tours for a family with smaller children. But, also consider the NO heat and humidity factor and be fit enough to do lots of walking at a brisk enough pace and wear comfortable shoes. Plan for rain..for just in case. Enjoy!

    The whole of todayโ€™s French Quarter is in a sense a tourist trap, sort of a Disneyland theme park. Gone are the beautiful friendly naked young women, wild all night parties, cocaine, etc.

    I'm from Boston and have visited Nola twice as my best friend lives here. Parking is soooo easy, cheap and available. Of course I'm comparing this to Boston which has NONE and lots are $40 minimum. Street signs aren't even close to Boston
